Working with talented stylists is always a great experience.
The creative process of a photoshoot goes far beyond choosing a few garments to put together… It starts with the spark of an idea, then translates into research on how to illustrate emotions into images that people can relate to.
Farline is a dedicated Montreal stylist on the rise and she put her heart and soul in this project. With the amazing garments of Anomal Couture, Melissa Nepton and Marylin Baril, her muse and sister Mirkessa brings life to these Canadian fashion brands. The concept of a housewife in a sterile whitewash environnement contrast with the beauty of her nubian skin.
As a make-up artist, it is important to be part of the discussion and research to have a great result. For these looks, we decided to go with cold metallic silver on a large portion of her face: I used the Nars Eye Paint in Interstellar for it's high pigmentation that reflected perfectly in the light. Motives Pressed Eyeshadows in Gunmetal was then added for depth and definition. Her complexion was beautified with the Motives Color Perfection Quads in Dark. No extreme lashes for this, only simple mascara. A very artificial look indeed that worked very well with the concept.
The entire team was truly a pleasure to work with. I have worked with Mirkessa in the past for multiple shoot and she effortlessly posed with grace. On the other hand, it was my first time with Marco Larivière and I can confirm it was a great experience. The editing he did on these shots truly added the edge that make these photos stand out from the rest! It will be a pleasure to work with this team again.
